Here’s a little update on what’s going on in my little world and I’ve been hesitant to share, but I’m just gonna do it!
Hey Guys! I’ve been putting off writing this post. Not because I don’t want to share it with you, but because it’s so far outside the realm of my little food world I’ve created here, that I’ve wondered how it would be received.
But, I’m digging in my heels and just doing it because it’s too good not to share! You might have already picked up on what I’ve been working on if you’ve noticed the addition to my menu bar at the top of the page. But if not, in addition to being a mom, wife, food blogger, photographer, laundry tamer, chronic snacker, and wanna-be hip hop dancer in my dreams, I’m now a LipSense distributor!
If you’re new to LipSense, it’s a long-wear lipstick that is kiss- proof, smudge-proof, pizza-proof, and lasts up to 18 hours when worn right and it’s amazeballs.
I signed up just over a month ago and am just in the beginning stages of it but I’m loving it so far and I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the product. So I wanted to share the top 7 things I learned about LipSense over the last few months today. It’s mostly just a goofy excuse to go through family pics, but it’s all true. 🙂
What I’ve Learned About LipSense
1. You Can Eat The World
I know we’re pretty food-focused here on Heather Likes Food and one of the reasons I love LipSense so much is because the title of my blog still rings true. Yep, I still really, really like food and LipSense allows me to eat all.the.things. WHILE wearing lipstick! Ha! But I can seriously put the lipstick on in the morning, have breakfast, lunch, dinner and any snacks in between without worrying if my lipstick is still in place. The first time I tried it I was so blown away and still am every time I look in the mirror after eating a meal. It’s ridiculous and probably the biggest reason I love it so much.
2. Hot Mess Mom to Just plain HOT
I’m at home with the kids, cooking and photographing, or behind this ol’ computer most days and I don’t have a lot of reason to get myself really “Ready” each day. But, there’s something about having lipstick on that makes me feel put together even if the rest of me is a complete and utter hot mess. LipSense goes on once in the morning when I still *possibly* have some energy to make myself presentable and comes off at night before bed. When my 2 year old decides to scale the mantle in his batman cape while I am filming 5 different recipe videos in one afternoon and get a call to run out the door because I forgot to pick my daughter up from her club at school, I can show up at the school looking totally put together and like I know what I’m doing because my lipstick is flawless. Let’s be honest, I know I’m not fooling anyone, but it makes me feel a little better.
3. Murder Scenes are SO 1980
I’ve always loved the idea of bright, bold lipstick but more often than not, I end up with it smeared across my teeth, or face, or children, or clothes within an hour of putting it on and look more like a scene from “The Shining” than anything close to glamourous. LipSense is smudge-proof, kiss-proof, food- proof, and budge-proof. No more murder-scene lips for me!
4. Love Them Babes
Kiss your babies, eat their delicious toes, give them raspberries on their tummies and take long afternoon naps with them. They are only young once, don’t mess it up by smearing lipstick all over them. 🙂
5. A Beauty Practice Your Significant Other Will Welcome
I can kiss on my hubs all I want without it coming off on him! He’s still pretty hesitant when I have a bright color on but he’s starting to learn that it won’t get on him. The clear lip gloss has shea butter in it and is ultra moisturizing too, so he reaps the benefits of not only kissing my plush lips but his get a good dose of moisture too!
6. Fight Crime Not Your Make-up
This stuff stays in place, ya’ll! I can run all my errands, take a nap, heck I can even take a shower or go swimming and it’s still on! Senegence (The company behind LipSense) has a whole line of long-wear makeup that doesn’t stop at just your lips! My other favorite product right now is ShadowSense which is a cream-to-powder eyeshadow that stays on just as well as the LipSense and it comes in gorgeous colors! You can use if for eyeshadow, bronzer, eyebrow filler, and even eyeliner and it doesn’t budge! It’s crazy sauce.
7. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Makeup is fun for me and if it’s not your thing, thats totally fine. But if you wear even a little bit of makeup, I know you’re going to absolutely fall head-over-heels in love with this stuff like I have! I have a FaceBook Group Set up where you can learn more about all the products and order to try it out. AND this coming weekend (4/13-16) I’m doing my launch and will have specials and giveaways going on– including a full starter kit! (a $55 value!) I hope to see you there!! Thanks for reading, friends!
